Nice, well organized shop and, hey, what a Lincoln.

Willy, this is a pretty nice looking shop that you have. It looks like you have it well organized and you have a nice collection of tools as well. I know that is a nice looking Lincoln but how about working on your brother to get him to move it out of your shop space? It definitely would give you more room for tools. After all why spoil a perfectly good shop by parking a car in it. :)

That is a useful sheet goods rack. My first one was like this but I ended up overloading it and ran into a space problem when I added my cabinet saw. My shop just would not let me have enough room to swing it open without hitting the saw. I rebuilt it as a mobile rack but, when it is loaded (it can hold at least 10 sheets of plywood), I have a great deal of trouble moving it. I probably will have to go back to a design similar to yours and put it someplace else in my shop.

By the way, let me welcome you to LJs as well.

Now mind you, I love your shop, but I must admit to a certain amount of drooling over that Lincoln…. I love old American cars, and the 1950’s – 1960s Fords, Lincolns, and Mercury’s were some of my favorites…

Thanks a lot guys for your compliments. Im very excited about the shop, and what I have been able to do in it so far. AS far as the car, I hope my brother changes his mind and sells it instead of totally restoring it. I would LOVE that space. There is also a wood burning stove on his side, that we never fire up, in fear of bubbling the paint off his car. Will post more pics as the shop progresses. Soon I will be completing the restoration of my newly acquired Steiner workbench. Cant Wait!!!

Thanks so much for the warm welcome! Will be turning to you guys soon for some advice with setting up the shop further!

Nice car. Just might be better than the shop. Did you refinish the car?

Beginner1, the car is my brothers, we are splitting the shop. He is working on restoring it now. Currently the transmission is on the bench, being rebuilt.
